The Alphonso mango!

The Alphonso mango!

Aapoos, Alfonso, Alphonso. An Alphonso mango by any name, is beyond delicious! For those of us who grew up in Bombay – yeah, in our day that was the name of the city – and in Goa, India, late April/May meant the arrival of this awesome fruit!!! Expensive (sometimes prohibitive) , totally dependent on how Mother Nature behaved earlier in the life of the fruit, this mango was a must have.

I am sorry but NO mango on this planet even compares in taste, flavour and texture to this amazing gift from Nature. Living in Canada means waiting for the local Indian stores to import these beauties every year. Sorry Mexico, it’s either this mango or none other.

Will be having one post dinner today!! YUM!!
